Elizabeth Simpson is an Ottawa-based illustrator
whose works appear weekly in publications across Canada. A graduate
of the Ontario College of Art, Elizabeth is a frequent contributor
to magazines and newspapers, from the National Post and National
Post Business to Canadian Living and Chatelaine.
In addition, she has been commissioned to work for
all levels of government and the corporate sector, from the Royal
Bank and Bon Marche to the Cities of Vancouver and Ottawa. Libraries,
museums and children's programs have also benefited from her illustrations.
The medium is gouache, and her whimsical style and
rich use of colour have led to many awards.
Recently, Elizabeth has started painting canvases for children's rooms. These fun, colorful and hand-painted original images are done in acrylic on stretched canvas of various sizes but all with a two-inch depth. Soon to come are images for kitchens and cottages, all on canvas or wooden blocks. Stay tuned!
